Rapid Mental Health Prevention Strategy

Reduce mental harm. Promote mental health.

The Rapid Mental Health Prevention (RMHP) Strategy assists an organization in making decisions toward improving employee mental health in the workplace using an evidence-based approach. The rapid approach is designed to be completed within three weeks. It proposes a thoughtful, 12- to 24-month action plan to assist an organization in making decisions toward improving employees’ mental health in the workplace through an evidence-based approach.

Leveraging the deep expertise of the Howatt HR team, the RMHP is aligned to the CSA National Psychological Health and Safety Standard and utilizes an evidence-based approach to help you:

  • Gather swift insights on current programs and policies.
  • Facilitate leadership buy-in to mitigate risk, prevent harm, and target prevention.
  • Foster understanding of organizational barriers, strengths, and opportunities.
  • Develop an action plan to improve employee mental health in the workplace.
